Jowitt’s Dictionary of English Law is the only truly authoritative dictionary of English law, defining every legal term used, both old and new – from “abandonment”, in its many different contexts, to “zoonoses”. It provides clarity on the meaning of words, when drafting, interpreting and understanding legal materials or for any other form of legal research.

  • Provides a concise, but comprehensive and authoritative definition of every expression that forms part of the law of England and Wales
  • Incorporates extensive additions and amendments to ensure it is absolutely up-to-date with current law
  • Covers European terms in so far as they form part of the law of England and Wales
  • Covers new and developing fields of law, including environmental law, housing, social security, alternative dispute resolution and more
  • Includes explanations of historical terms, placing newer terms in context
  • Complements – and cross-referenced to – Stroud’s Judicial Dictionary
  • Provides an authoritative point of reference for research or for understanding any unfamiliar term or area of law

The 4th edition provides a necessary update with old and obsolete terms removed and additions and amendments made to ensure that the title is absolutely up-to-date with current law. This new edition reflects the wide-ranging changes in all areas of the law that have taken place in the last five years. The opportunity has also been taken to include new legal concepts, including those arising out of devolved legislation.

This title is typically used in conjunction with Stroud’s Judicial Dictionary and is regularly cited to and by the courts.
